Buffy The Vampire Slayer

Sleeper - S7-E8

Continuity mistake: When Anya pretends to want to have sex with Spike again, she holds a stake up in her right hand. In the shots facing Anya she holds it at a horizontal angle. But in the shots behind her, she holds it at a diagonal angle.

Beer Bad - S4-E5

Continuity mistake: When the Cavemen knock out Willow, she lands flat on her front. Later on, one of the Cavemen watches Willow as she lies unconscious, and she is now lying on her back. Then when Buffy finds her when the building is burning down, she is back on her front.

THGhost

Prophecy Girl - S1-E12

Continuity mistake: When Buffy falls down after the Master bites her, you can see her fall, then hear her hit the dry ground. But then a few shots later she falls again and this time into water.

Consequences - S3-E15

Continuity mistake: When the detective is interviewing the woman in the alley, he mentions that the murder took place "last night". In "Bad Girls", we see Buffy visiting Faith the day after the murder, and that night is presumably when she has the dream about drowning, so by the time the detective is asking this question it is actually two nights after the murder, not one.

Shay

No Place Like Home - S5-E5

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the episode Buffy is thrown against a 'No Trespassing' sign and the sign is all crinkled, the vampire also punches it but later in the episode we see the same sign except that it looks brand new.

Graduation Day (2) - S3-E22

Continuity mistake: When Wesley and Cordelia kiss, after a few seconds they freeze in place. Cordelia has her left arm around his waist, we see a shot of her face for about a second with her arm definitely angled downwards, then we cut to Wes' face and her hand's now on his neck. (00:25:20)

The Dark Age - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: At the end of the episode, Buffy complains to Willow and Xander that she will have to blow her allowance on getting the tattoo removed before her Mom sees it. Moments later when Buffy is talking to Giles, the tattoo is gone. (00:40:45 - 00:42:30)

Lover's Walk - S3-E8

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Xander and Willow are stuck in the factory Xander wakes up you'll notice that the blood on his side burn closest to his ear constantly changes lengths from shot to shot. It goes from under the chin to slightly below where the blood on the other side of his side burn is. (00:30:30)

Pangs - S4-E8

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Anya is undressing a sick Xander in his basement, she lifts up his shirt and says 'Help me get your trousers off.' During the following conversation, in the close-up shots his shirt is lifted far up on his chest, but in the wider shots it's covering his whole stomach.

Hell's Bells - S6-E16

Continuity mistake: When Anya is confronting Dawn about Xander's disappearance and the demon boy leaves, he walks past Dawn and her attention is on Anya but in the next shot you see him walking away from behind and his sleeve is still in the shot as Dawn turns back to Anya.

Touched - S7-E20

Spike: You listen to me. [Kneels in front of her.] I've been alive a bit longer than you, and dead a lot longer than that. I've seen things you couldn't imagine, and done things I prefer you didn't. I don't exactly have a reputation for being a thinker. I follow my blood, which doesn't exactly rush in the direction of my brain. So I make a lot of mistakes, a lot of wrong bloody calls. A hundred plus years, and there's only one thing I've ever been sure of: you. [Buffy looks away; he reaches toward her face.] Hey, look at me. I'm not asking you for anything. When I say, "I love you, " it's not because I want you or because I can't have you. It has nothing to do with me. I love what you are, what you do, how you try. I've seen your kindness and your strength. I've seen the best and the worst of you. And I understand with perfect clarity exactly what you are. You're a hell of a woman. You're the one, Buffy.
Buffy: [Quietly.] I don't wanna be the one.

The Yoko Factor (1) - S4-E20

Question: At the last moment before leaving for good, Angel pauses to tell Buffy "I don't like him" [Riley], to which she replies with a large smile "Thank you." Why does she take this comment surprisingly well? From an ex boyfriend to her new boyfriend? It's not like it sounds like a friendly warning of any sort, nor a joke given the tense situation between the two guys in the episode. And the smile on Buffy's face does not make her response look ironic either, more like loving/caring. Is that a cross over reference to another dialogue in the Angel series?

AnthonyA

Chosen answer: Angel is saying that he is still jealous and Buffy recognizes that this is his way of saying he wishes that they could be together. That is why they both smile.
